Introduction: Ukulele Stand

This is a ukulele stand that I built in woodshop last year. It's pretty simple but it looks great and works very well. I didn't take any pictures while I was building it, so I can only show you the finished product but it's simple enough that you should be able to get the general gist of it ;)

    Nice design. I've actually used the top of your design, just cut it off below the angle brace, and use it as a wall mount hanger. Just add a hole for a screw.

    Thanks! I'm glad to hear that you were able to make use of it. I'm curious to see a picture of your stand!

    Looking good.
    Does the uke hang from the head or does it rest on the bottom and lean into the head cradle? Is it worth adding a removable gate?

    Thanks for the reply! It just hangs from the head, doesn't touch the bottom feet. As for me personally, I decided not to add a gate because the groove I cut out held the uke in place pretty well, though if it gets knocked good it could definatelly slip out.

    Btw, wanted to note that I've been using it for about a year now and havn't had any scrates on the wings what-so-ever since I've started using it so I don't think there's much need for any padding on the top piece.

    Have a good day!
